OnePlus Nord Android 11 update details
After downloading the Android 11-based Open Beta 1 update, OnePlus Nord users will see a fresh user interface (UI) visual design according to the changelog. The company has improved the stability and user experience of some third-party applications. There will be a new Insight watch style, a joint creation with the Parsons School of Design. This is what we saw on the OnePlus 8 Pro. This will basically give information about how much one has used their phone in a day as well as showing the time. A person will also be able to see how many times he unlocked his OnePlus Nord in a day.
The update also brings a canvas feature that can automatically pull a wireframe photo based on the lock screen photo on your phone. It is accessible in the Settings section. Then you need to select Customization> Wallpaper> Canvas> Photo Preview and then it can be generated automatically. OnePlus has added as many as 10 new watch styles. These are hidden in Settings> Customization> Clock style. The new software update also adds a shortcut key for Dark Mode, and now you need to drag down the Quick Settings to enable the theme. Users can customize the time frame of the dark mode. Now there is an option that will automatically turn on the dark subject.

Users of the OnePlus Nord also get a Story function in the gallery, which will automatically create weekly videos with photos and videos in storage.
